Trading In The Zone by Mark Douglas - best trading book ever written in my opinion.

YOUR MONEY AND YOUR BRAIN: How The New Science Of Neuroeconomics Can Help Make You Rich
By Jason Zweig

TRO has some excerpts here:
http://kreslik.com/forums/viewtopic.php ... &start=170

Its available at your local library, or from amazon for about $10. Also can get it as an amazon kindle and use the kindle reader for PC.

It really made me take a look at how I have been (and still am inclined to) make my most costly decisions.

There's nothing like it. It's freakin' awesome.

To understand something important from "Trading in the zone"
(I mean - really understand) might take a while.
I've tried to read this book myself twice & still cannot finish.

"Market wizards" and
"New market wizards"
by J Schwager

could suit someone better,
because they have some very good & clear
understandable examples & conclusions.

The most important thing is not the market, but the philosophy of the trader himself.
